Client Testimonials

“Outstanding collaborative effort between myself, Malcolm and my contractor.”

Description of work:

new construction architectural design services

“Malcolm and Staff Were Great.  My home in Ortley Beach, NJ was destroyed by Hurricane Sandy. It took some time to gather the funding to rebuild and since I was living 200 miles away, I hired my first architect that was closer to where I was living. After an extended time – five months – I had construction drawings – or so I thought. Even though the first architect was in New Jersey and should have known the codes, builders had a difficult time doing proposals, claimed they could not apply for permits with the drawings, and said they had to be redrawn. One of the builders recommended Malcolm Burton, AIA and I am very happy with the result. Malcolm redid the design, exchanged drawings via email, and worked with me over the phone via conference calls. His detailed designer was excellent and the staff put up with my changes and questions. They certainly understood the idiosyncrasies of the local building department so that there would be minimal issues when applying for permits. They were also able to do the piling foundation design, understood new and advanced construction techniques, handled all hurricane and flood design criteria, and produced a clear and complete set of drawings. The pricing was very reasonable and the professionalism was exemplary. If I ever need any architectural work in the future, Malcolm Burton, AIA would be my choice. I highly recommend this firm.”

“Mr. Burton was the ultimate professional from my first phone contact with him through our plan design and review through his planning board appearances and the ultimate completion of our project. There wasn’t a detail missed or glitch solved. It is rare to find people as competent and easy to work with as Malcolm. I deal with design professionals and contractors in five states in my line of work and wish they all were as good !
I wouldn’t hesitate for a moment in recommending his services.”

“We were thoroughly pleased with Malcolm Burton’s designing our new house. His team’s attention to detail was impressive.”

Ken and Jerilee O.
“Malcolm was great!  Very professional, responsive.  He does a lot of work in the Jersey Shore thus knew exactly what the Town requirements were.  He helped me submit plans ahead of a construction moratorium and the job was completed before the shutdown.  He even met me on a Saturday morning to hand deliver the plans as I don’t live near the Jersey Shore.”

Description of work:

Architectural drawings for a curtain wall on an elevated beach bungalow.  Needed drawings to obtain permits from Toms River Township.

“We added on a set of rooms to our house for my mother-in-law to be able to move in with us. Malcolm did an excellent job in helping us define the overall job, draft up the plans, and helped us make sure we met the various codes of our local municipality. I would definitely use Malcolm again should I ever need building plans drawn up again. Even my builder said Malcolm’s plans were the most detailed he has ever worked with.”

James R.

“Found him very helpful.  He had all the answers to the question I asked him.  He is up to date with the local building codes.  He is a great help making practical decisions and works with you in what you want in your design. “

Dennis G.

‘Prompt, Reasonable, and Professional, Malcolm delivers! We utilized Malcolm on several jobs and we found him easy to communicate with as he understood the objectives and designed plans that best met our needs. Malcolm consulted with us when needed so that there was no misunderstanding, and was quite expeditious in completing the final plans. Malcolm is very easy to work with and his rates are reasonable as well. We would highly recommend Malcolm.”

Pat R.

“Malcolm was on time and had everything down to a tee. He was very professional, gave good ideas. He got back to us very quickly. “

Bill K.

“I am not a contractor but a homeowner who knows nothing about this process. Malcolm was excellent in leading us through this process of redesigning to meet the criteria required by FEMA and the township. He and his staff went beyond their required boundaries to help explain and point us in the right direction to get the job done. Malcolm & his staff could not have done a better job for us. They are very knowledgeable of the requirements of FEMA. We would recommend Malcolm and staff to anyone.”
